A blizzard brings them together… A twist of fate threatens to tear them apart.
Seeking her father’s approval, ski patrol candidate, Isabelle Rollins, will stop at nothing to secure her place among the highly respected patrollers at Snowcap Resort, even if it means risking her life. When she becomes lost in a blizzard, she fights her way to the doorstep of a handsome stranger, only to discover he is the one man who can stand in the way of her dream.
Seeking refuge from his tragic past, Ski Patrol Director, Mitchell Donovan, prays his new environment will help his daughter heal and overcome her persistent nightmares. When a stranded woman shows up on his doorstep desperate to survive a raging blizzard, he brings her in from the cold and into his life, only to discover she's the one woman he has no business falling for.
Be home. Be home. Be home. She willed the owner to open the door. She imagined the life-saving warmth beyond her reach and shuffled her feet in anticipation.
A curtain fluttered in the window and a yellow porch light came on. The lock scraped out of the frame before the door cracked open. Warmth gushed out of the room, tantalizing her skin with the promise of salvation. Izzy lifted her gaze to the tall man who stood beyond the three-inch gap in the doorway. His astonished, cobalt gaze traveled over her as he held the door solid against the strong winds bashing against it.

Izzy tilted her head. Those words were not the ones she had expected to come from the man who would save her life. But, she must appear somewhat insane to be out in such dangerous weather.
Instead of wasting energy defending her mental stability, she answered through her rattling teeth, “I-I’m stranded in th-the storm. I n-need help.” She began to sag as her knees buckled with fatigue.
“I can see that.” Concern creased his brow as he swung the door in a wide arc. Striding forward, he banded an arm around her waist and propelled her inside. “You’re going to be OK. I’ve got you now.”
